BEASTS OF THE FIELD...


AND THE WATER WAS RIGHT BY THE DRY AREA
AND THE BIRDS WERE REALLY HAPPY!

=================
Dave and I were just leaving Uganda after our first visit in late February, 1991.  We ended up in the Nairobi area for a couple days.  Our plane should have left immediately, but the Gulf War had just finished.   Strangely, when in mid-January leaving home, a significant portion of the war messed us up in New York City and London.  We arrived in Uganda later than anticipated by at least 3 days.   Then, those weeks later, while leaving Uganda, the warfare event had the same effect.  So many flights around the world were messing things up.  And, amazingly, we were blessed.  While we were spending a couple days in Nairobi a missionary organization took care of us, and one of the main guys drove us around and about at the Nairobi National Park.  It was so filled with some many of our favorite animals and birds.  AND the Word the Lord dropped onto me recently could be fit into these photos.

What a treat THEN...and many treats afterward when in Uganda, Costa Rica, Morocco and the U.S. ... to take photos of animals and wonderful people.

How we do need water and the animals rejoice too. What a blessed story of your memories of Uganda. Thank you for sharing with us here at "Tell Me a Story."

I love it when that happens, so many times God has "delayed " our travels only to bring something special into our lives. A few times the "delay" hard to take but I did learn to just relax and enjoy. Good reminder my sister.
